Huawei sold over 6 million P20 devices in three months
Huawei launched the P20 devices to a huge media reception. It would seem that all the marketing wasn’t for nothing, as the company sold six million units of the phones in the ten weeks following the devices' launch, according to an official statement.
The P20 phones selling six million in just over two months is definitely impressive. Huawei sold about 39 million smartphones in all of Q1 2018, for some perspective. Of course, sales are split between three devices—the P20 Pro, P20, and P20 Lite. According to the company, this number represents an 81% increase over the P10's sales last year.
“It is Huawei’s unremitting efforts for a better photography experience on smartphones that have pushed up shipments of P20 both at home and abroad," Kevin Ho, Head of Huawei's smartphone division, was quoted as saying.
The P20 phones are hailed for their camera performance—the P20 Pro, in particular, being crowned the best camera device on the planet by DxOMark. Of course, multiple hands-on reviews have cast shadows of doubt on theory since then, but it’s undeniable that the devices offer top-of-the-line cameras.
